We believe everyone deserves equal access to Physical Activity and Sport.

We believe that the introduction of physical activity into core homelessness provision is essential to bring about positive change, transform lives and prevent homelessness. 

That’s why we’ve launched the Physical Activity For All Initiative; consisting of information sharing toolkitsroundtable events and sport bags

Through our Physical Activity For All Initiative - Our vision is to:

  • To share our experience, insights and findings 
  • Engage, grow and nurture a network of enthusiastic partners 
  • To encourage organizations to introduce Sport & physical activity into their offering 
  • Influence and inspire others to join the conversation around the positive impact sport and physical activity have on the lives of people experiencing or at risk of homelessness. 

We’re excited to share our first three toolkits in this series:

How to engage adults 55+ in physical activity & sport

This toolkit will reflect the work and findings of the Sport Project's first three years (2017-2020). Explaining how we got started, how others’ can too, and identifying areas future toolkits will focus upon.

Our work during the first stage of the project highlighted some key findings, evidencing that regular physical activity can bring significant improvements in physical and mental health, socialisation, and isolation.

How to build a network of volunteers & freelancers

The success of our Sport Project and its growth is largely down to our volunteers and freelancers. The Project relies heavily on them to run weekly sessions and one-off opportunities.

Find out how you can use volunteers and freelancers to start, grow or enhance your sport offer in your organisation.

How to use physical activity to combat loneliness and social isolation

Sport & physical activity can be a powerful tool to make positive changes in the lives of the people you support. 

One of the key outcomes of our Sport Project has been the improvement to our participants mental health and the friendships that have flourished through the sessions.
